As of Sunday, May 16, we are again able to sing as a part of worship. Per state and county guidelines we are again able to sing as a part of our worship together.
The Lutheran tradition has always placed great importance in singing praise to the glory of God. Wherever and whenever Christians gather, they sing songs of praise, songs of confidence and faith, songs of confession and contrition, songs of exile and rebirth, and songs of sin and salvation. The gift of song in the Lutheran church serves as a means by which the Christian proclaims thanksgiving for the victory and salvation from sin won through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
"Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music."
― Martin Luther
Choirs and instrumentalists in the Lutheran church serve to help and support the gathered congregation, assisting and enriching the entire worship setting. Our Savior offers opportunities for all ages to participate and assist in leading worship.
